===Cosmological constant===
When the Landau–Lifshitz pseudotensor was formulated it was commonly assumed that the [[cosmological constant]], <math>\Lambda \,</math>, was zero. Nowadays [[accelerating universewe don't make that assumption]], and the expression needs the addition of a <math>\Lambda \,</math> term, giving:
:<math>t_{LL}^{\mu \nu} =  \frac{c^4}{8\pi G}(G^{\mu \nu}+\Lambda g^{\mu \nu}) + \frac{c^4}{16\pi G (g)}((g)(g^{\mu \nu}g^{\alpha \beta}  g^{\mu \alpha}g^{\nu \beta}))_{,\alpha \beta}</math>
This is necessary for consistency with the [[Einstein field equations]].
